what to expect FOR DAY RETREATS:
Please refer to each retreat for the day schedule, as each facilitator customizes their presentation.
Durning your quiet prayer time, you can choose to pray in Branches' Rosary Garden, near the Altar of Divine Mercy, or the Outdoor Stations of the Cross. You may go for a walk or just rest and absorb the beautiful views of Seneca Lake.
In addition to lunch, drinks will be provided throughout the retreat.
Suggested items to bring: sunscreen and wear sturdy shoes.
Branches is located on 2.3 acres of wooded, private lake front property on Seneca Lake, NY.
Take time to rest and pray.

Our view of Seneca Lake.
Our facility is on level ground raised above the lake. Being located up high offers privacy and stunning lake views.
We have a steep stone driveway. 2-wheel drive vehicles will make it up when one starts with a little extra speed at the approach. Guests also park on the shoulder of the road and walk up or we can provide a ride up in our pick-up truck. If parking roadside, please do not park north of our driveway as this is not our property. Please park south of the orange cones. Branches' driveway is a shared access. Please turn right at the top of the driveway. Do not turn left as that is our neighbors' private property, which we do not enter. Thank you for your cooperation.
Currently Branches is an outdoor facility with full service bathroom. If rain and wind prohibits the use of our grounds, we will do our best to reschedule with a rain date or provide a refund.
Please visit “Our Goals” to appreciate our vision for the property. Although Branches will eventually be wheelchair accessible, currently we are not. Sorry for the temporary inconvenience.
